Graham's Equestrian Dreams

LAUREN GRAHAM had a back-up career planned if she failed at acting - the BAD SANTA star wanted to be a professional jockey.
The 42 year old grew up riding horses in Virginia, and thought she was destined to race horses until she landed her first starring role in a high school play.
She says, "I worked in a barn and I rode every day. That's what I thought I was gonna do with my life. I don't know (what happened) - show business. I got in the school play, so I stopped riding. I was going to be a mountain police person or a jockey. I said those were my choices, because I can't type."
